Post-Game 17 Thread: Urine, Urine, Everywhere

DODGERS 7, BRAVES 2

James Loney was intentionally walked in this game. And that wasn't even the astounding part.

No, the surprising performance was from the rotund Juan Uribe, whose stick-bat-out-and-doink-ball, 4-for-4, 3 RBI, 2 R performance raised his batting average to .286. This eclipsed Loney's 2-for-3, 1 2B, 2 R evening (Loney is batting .245). Matt Kemp went 2-for-3 to raise his average to .460; Andre Ethier went 3-for-4 with an RBI to raise his average to .308.

All this feasting came at the expense of Jair Jurrjens (3.0 IP, 9 H, 5 ER, 0 Ks) and Livan Hernandez (4.1 IP, 6 H, 2 ER). Chris Capuano (7.0 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 5 Ks) gets the victory.

Dodgers are 7-0 at home and improve to 13-4 for the NL's best record.

I cant believe I thought today was an off-day. Where's my brain?

We win the AFC West!

How is Tony Jackson going to belittle this win?

Hideo Nomo said...

I wish they'd stop talking about the 13-0 home streak. Remember what happened at the end of that one?

Steve Sax said...

Ah, we lost a game at home?

Steve Sax said...

(i'm just kidding)

Steve Sax said...

(I was there for the 13th game, but not the next one.

Ugh.)

Alternate PGT: Despite doubling his effort, Jerjerrod can't beat Dodgers.

Steve Sax said...

Gnomes, that's f'ing awesome. Sorry I beat you to the PGT, as we should have gone with that.

The day after the 13th, they found manny with PED...

Steve Sax said...

PS it's not lost on me that I write a GT based on marshmallows, and Urine goes off. Hmm.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Jurrjens was optioned to the minors immediately after the game.

Steve Sax said...

"Look, son: James Loney and Juan Uribe just went 2-for-2 off you. You've clearly got a problem."

NicJ said...

There is Tony Jackson's opening!

"The Dodgers were able to beat up on a minor league pitcher."

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm surprised the guy has options left.

NicJ said...

Me too, he has been in the majors for a while.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Jair is making $5.5 million this year, beating out John Lannan's $5 million salary to become the highest-paid minor leaguer.

Steve Sax said...

@Mr LA SC 11:32p: totally. But there's always a home for a sarcastic Dodgers beat writer, right?
